By Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay at design studio Raw Edges for Italian brand Lema. The idea behind the design is that many novels, once read are never reread, but passed on to friends, given away or even destroyed. Booken uses these books as an intrinsic part of the support system of the bookshelf (or side table for books). Conversely, favourite books can also be stored in this way with favourite passages marked by one of the 20 oak ‘bookmarks' supplied as part of the shelf. Booken can also be wall hung and comes in two open pore colours allowing the texture of the wood grain to show through the lacquer colour.
